When I was looking for a CAD package, I was looking at SolidWorks but ended up not getting it as it was too expensive. (I was quoted a base price of $4,000 plus $1,300 per year "upkeep".) In my process of looking at the package, I bought the book "SolidWorks 2007 Bible." I no longer have a need for the book so if someone would like the book, I will ship it to them if they will pay for the shipping. The 1,075 page book is new and complete with the CD still in the pouch.
Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electronically Challenged really SUCKS!!
Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.
